dog panting & eye twitching

My dog recently had an episode where her eyesbrows were twitching and her eyes were rapidly going back and forth. She also had paralysis of her back legs and was panting. We took her to the vet and the vet said it was neurological and probably a stroke. She has had about 5 episodes in the last week varying in severity but the eyes and the panting are always present in the episodes. She doesn't seem to be in any pain. I have tried to look for something similar online and found eclampsia but it seems to happen in nursing or new mother dogs. Tippy is 14 years old. Once the episode has subsided (usually within 6 hours for the worst one) there are no lingering effects. Does anyone have any ideas for us?

Did your vet speak to you about the possibility of seizure activity ? Might be something to pursue.

More info on the condition of your dog

Did this trend continue? Did you ever find out what it was? Our 2-year-old dog is having the same exact eye movement right now. We are really scared and don't know how serious this is.

There is also something called vestibular sydrome that you might want to look into: http://www.vetinfo.com/dencyclopedia/devestib.html

Most dogs recover, but it can be pretty scary while it's going on. Talk to your vet.
